I SEE A NEW NIGERIA

Nigeria,
A nation with lots of actors as leaders
Saying one thing and doing another
We’re blessed with countless resources my brother
But where are we today, I wonder
At 53,
Nigeria is one very big tree
But how fruitful has she been under the guide of the big three
With each arm of government run like a jamboree
How did we get here? I ponder
How?
Tribalism, Religious differences, Lack of integrity
Selfishness, nepotism and zero accountability
Conflict, Corruption, abuse of power, gross impunity
Forces threatening to tear Nigeria asunder
But
I see a nation where there are no pot holes. Yes.
I see a nation where PHCN leaves power on permanently. Yes.
I see a nation where ASUU is never on strike & youths are meaningfully engaged. Yes
I see a nation where opportunities are democratized and not personalized. Yes
I see a nation without Boko Haram, Kidnappings but pure peace all around. Yes
I see a nation where politicians don’t focus on elections but dividends of democracy. Yes
I see a nation where everything works as it ought to. Yes.
I see a nation where foreigners rush to get our visa. Yes
I see a nation forging a new face for Africa and her numerous nations. Yes
I SEE A NEW NIGERIA
I see a nation united in purpose
I see a nation led with vision and not by the morose
I see a nation of vibrant intellectuals not comatose
I see a nation of citizens able and responsible not trying to dose
I see a nation flowing with land, milk and honey we can ‘use to pose’
I see a nation in tune with the dreams of her founding fathers who arose
I SEE THE GIANT OF AFRICA. I SEE A NEW NIGERIA
ARISE FROM YOUR SLUMBER. ARISE NIGERIA.
We are not despondent, we are independent. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE!
